Let's Think Spring!
Once again, it is time for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you for hosting my favorite meme, Susan.

This week I decided on green and white for no special reason other than green is my favorite color.
I started with a off-white machine made lace tablecloth that I found at the thrift store long ago.
I layered green and white plates and topped them with some Homer Laughlin Priscilla soup/salad bowls that belonged to my husband's grandmother and was gifted to me at Thanksgiving, by his cousin, Beverly. Back stamp says Homer Laughlin Made in USA HOUSEHOLD INSTITUTE Priscilla. The Household Institute line was the result of a 1941 agreement between the Homer Laughlin China Company and the Club Aluminum Company. The line was purchased specifically for Club Aluminum's continuity plans in their food stores divisions and was produced for several years.
The green dinner and salad plates were purchased at TJMaxx, both on sale, a while back. There is a shield on the back with a B in the center, Made in China. The white inner plate was a thrift store find.
The "charger" plate, which is actually a dinner plate.
The "dinner" plate. The backstamp has Totally Today, Made in China. Replacements, Ltd. doesn't list the pattern name or actual maker.
Layers of plates!
Back stamp on the soup/salad bowl.
The glassware is Anchor Hocking Wexford produced from 1967 until 1998.
Placesetting with early afternoon sun hitting the table.
Centerpiece is just candles and a wicker topiary orbs in a green/white urn, all of which were found at thrift stores.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog...it is very much appreciated. Hope to see you again next week.
